Thanks Pierre, for your comments and explanations.

So, the worker is communicat with a message queue and not
more direct with the masters? Will the workers have unique 
logins again? So that we get the same problem with the 
static configuration of the replicasets?

I'm aware of that. What are our options?

- name: Kubernetes operator
    - We do not need to change the architecture of BuildBot.
    - A lot of workronds are required.
    - It only works with Kubernetes
- name: BuildBot does without unique logins.
    - No workarounds on cube level.
    - Works also without cubernets.
    - The master-worker communication needs a session ID. So a 
      change to the BuildBot code - right?

Best Regards,
